Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) today destroyed a Chevron offshore export pipeline at Escravos, Warri South-West LGA in Delta State. The militant group which operates from the Niger Delta region, said the attack on the oil company’s pipeline is to further warn all IOCs’ that they shouldn't repair damaged pipelines until they
negotiate/dialogue with the people of Niger Delta
The statement signed by its spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo, reads:
"Today at about 3:45am, our strike team 06 took down Chevron Escravos export pipeline at Escravos offshore. This action is to further warn all IOCs’ that when we warn that there should be no repairs pending negotiation/dialogue with the people of the Niger Delta, it means there should be no repairs. Any attempt to use dialogue to distract us so as to allow the free flow of our oil will halt our dialogue process."
